    What size fuse for a pair of 5150 187 4' whips?

    Just got these whips in and there was no inline fuse already. Nor any instructions. I can't find the draw of these whips anywhere so I don't know what size of fuse to wire in.

    Also, is there need for a relay for whips? I understand they draw so little power that no relay is needed.

    Thanks!

    Pretty sure they are a 20 ga wore which would require a 5 amp fuse. Even if it’s an 18 ga...still should only need 5 amp. Shouldn’t need a 10 amp until you hit around 16 ga.
